Swedish steel prize winner 2002
2002 | Jindo Corporation | Korea Winner 6 min read
Jindo Corporation of Korea has been nominated for its container design for road and rail transport in North America, an engineering area which makes exacting demands with regard to low weight, safety and return on investment, and where aluminium and conventional steels have traditionally been the materials used.
Jindo has developed a container in which low-corrosion extra high strength steel is used. This results in a marked reduction in weight in comparison with equivalent designs in standard steel. It also enables significantly lower production costs than aluminium designs of comparable weight. The maintenance costs of Jindo’s extra high strength steel containers, moreover, are considerably lower than those of alternative designs.
